We have frozen this blog as a historical, yet informational view at what life is like in the West Indies Mission for all those called to serve. This blog was designed for the families and friends of those missionaries serving in the West Indies Mission from July 2006 to July 2009. Every six weeks, photos taken at zone conference as well as a new slide show including every person baptized were posted on the blog. All of the slide shows are also available on our You Tube channel. The current West Indies Mission blog can be found here. Posts on our missionary experience can be found here and earlier. And finally, if you are a returned missionary who served in the West Indies, there is a current blog for you. Click here or visit westindiesrm@blogspot.com

Dispensations and Apostasy Media

I have had a lot of requests for the information and images I presented during the last Zone Conference tour so I thought I would post them here.

I exported my slides as images and made them into a Picasa slideshow. You can click through them by using the arrows. Clicking on the images takes you to the picasa album where you can download images if you want.

The presentation is a bit misleading without hearing the things we discussed. Here are three points:
  • The early dates are only approximations based on the earlier version of the LDS Bible (BD 'chronology') and the latest research
  • The dispensations depicted are not the only ones that occurred (see BD reference on 'dispensations')
  • There was not complete apostasy between all dispensations. For example, Adam was alive at the same time as Enoch and Enoch was alive with Noah (OT Institute manual charts).
(I made it extra large even though it doesn't fit the page very well)

At the end of the presentation I showed this video from lds.org
